Candy Cane Snowman

Candy Cane Snowman - Time for a new sketch at Seems a Little Sketchy!!!

Here is our sketch. I hope you join us. Our challenge runs for 2 weeks and we even have our next sketch posted, just for you!

My image is Snowman, Candy and Holly by Crafty Sentiments, who is one of our sponsors. Our other sponsor is The Robin's Nest. 

My DP is Fancy Pants, Merry Little Christmas paper pad. The image is colored with Copics and I added some chunky glitter for the snow.

My papers were inked with distress ink. I don't remember which color I used.
